    Finally upgraded bows this year to the Revolt X. I'm in need of new arrows this year and trying to decide what it is I want. I'm shooting a Revolt X, 72.5lbs draw weight, 29" DL, Performance Setting I've been shooting GT Hunter and Hunter XT 340 spine. In an effort to see what some different...

    We've all heard guys talk about shooting a heavier broad head for more penetration so two questions. How many people believe this heavy equals more penetration? Second, at what weight do you worry about too much arrow flexing and switch to a stiffer arrow?
  3. General Archery Discussion
    Anyone have any input on what arrow would work best for a short draw length? I am currently at 25.5" and shooting 73lbs. I am looking to get more penetration without loosing a lot of speed for shooting out to 50 yards.

    Much (almost all) of my info and knoweldge regarding Dr. Ashby's single bevel suggestion is internet based reading. I have no 1st hand experience, yet. I like the idea of a heavy hard hitting arrow and I like what I've seen in ragards to not only the bone breaking characteristics of a SB, but...

    I've been a member for awhile but have not posted much. I have been blessed with the gobs of info available here in older posts, however, so let me take this opportunity to thank you all. It's been super helpful! I'm relatively new to bowhunting (2nd season) but am having a blast with it. I've...

    Arrowed a nice buck last night at 32 yards. Shooting a PSE Brute X set at 65# (29" GT XT Hunter 7595/340 w/Luminoks & tipped with 100 gr. 2" Swhacker). Shooting from a climbing stand 22-25' up. Deer was nearly perfectly broadside (with right side perhaps quartering away ever so slightly) and I...

    I was hoping to see if anyone has any input on very high FOC arrows. I recently switched from Beaman ICS Hunter Pros to Black Eagle Rampages with the stainless Bone Crusher half-outs and a 125grain head. I originally planning on switching to 100 grain heads with the new arrows but I’ve noticed a...

    I know there have been countless posts on mechanical broadheads and their pros /cons. This is not intended to rehash that. So for the purpose of this thread lets just assume we are in the world of hunting elk with mechanicals, and narrow it even further to hunting with Grim Reapers. I shoot...

    I'm shooting a mathews z7 xtreme with 27 inch draw, 480gr goldtip kinectic xt arrows with FOC around 12%. Arrow speed close to 250 fps. Was wondering if the stryker magnum or wac'em xl(basicly a large cut 3 blade fixed blade broadhead) would get passthroughs on large whitetails? Shot through...

    A while back I bought some Ulmer edge 125 grain to try. Needless to say they fly perfectly but I was yet to try them out on any game. This last weekend I finally got to use one on a small eating size sow. I was actually out stalking for deer when I came across a small pack on pigs. I spotted...

    Lots of people have been posting about this subject and some even get pretty riled up about it lets look at it in a real world scenario kinda way. Saying we are shooting all arrows from the same bow no adjustments to draw length or draw weight (30 DL/70 DW/330 IBO) for arguments sake, at what...
  12. Broadhead Discussion
    I currently shoot Rage, but due to penetration issues with the rage (when in contact with bone), I am thinking about switching to a fixed blade where failure is less likely. My friends have recommended Muzzy, Slick Trick, and Thunderheads. Which leaves the best blood trail with the most...
  13. Broadhead Discussion
    Has anyone used Rockets Meat Seekers? I bought 3 blade 1 1/2 inch cut and 2 blade 2 inch cut. I have killed 2 does this year. One with each!! I am telling you these broadheads left the worse blood trail I have ever experienced! The first doe I shot this year was 30 yards quartering away. I...

    Hi everyone Iv been playing around with arrow weights in the easton calculator, and Im a bit confused. I was always under the impression that a heavier broad head would increase kn energy and there for penetration, but what iv found with my bow setup, is that a 433 grain arrow will have a higher...
  17. General Archery Discussion
    ok first the question, does a 125 grain tip really increase penetration? recently bought a pack of easton axis st 340s at a local shop, got 5 for 30$....winning! lol well anyhow, got home, realised, didnt have the inserts :pukey: next day was at the farm working and after lunch took grandpa to...

    I shot some 2 blade rages into a shielded hog. Everyone know that im not bashing rages they are probably great for some applications, but in my limited experience i wont be using expandables for shielded hogs. I just enjoy running tests to see what works best...
  19. Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    i did some real world tests on a hog the other day and got some feedback so i did some more tests on another hog. this video gives you a good perception of how to beat the shield in hogs. but the bottom line is if you dont have a powerful bow with a heavy arrow dont try to shoot through the...
